If a patient presents to our medical aid unit with a laceration of the right arm, and was seen a month or so prior with another issue, would I code this charge as an established patient? We are not open 24 hrs. as an emergency room, we use the same two doctors on staff. Thanks.

I agree, this is an established patient, for documenation refer to the E/M guidelines of the CPT book.
